Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the normative and theoretical contents of the concept of equality. It considers some of the feminist debates on equality as cultural “recognition,” political “representation,” sameness and difference, and socioeconomic “redistribution.” The article also identifies the risks of the arrival of the concept of multiple equality strands and intersectionality. Finally, it takes a look at the shift toward diverse groups and multiple equality considerations, along with the implications of the “feminism versus multiculturalism” debate for equality.

Keywords: equality, feminist debates, risks, multiple equality strands, intersectionality, diverse groups, feminism versus multiculturalism
